Sophie was asleep and suddenly screamed with pain. Then she arched her back and didn’t seem to be aware of her surroundings.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name and age?

Sophie, a peke, 12 yrs old yesterday.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Sophie?

She involuntarily voided on my lap.

When did this occur? Is this the only episode that she's had of this type? Did she seem to be fully conscious the whole time?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
This is the 2nd occurrence of this episode. The first was approximately 6-8 wks ago. She doesnt appear to loss consciousness more dazed afterwards, looking around as if to evaluate her surroundings. She recovers within seconds and starts wagging her tail as I talk to her.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I am taking her into our veterinary clinic. I will not be using this service any longer.
